Smith took to social media today (Nov. 2) to thank his fan base for their continued support during the journey that went into the making of the new full-length.

“I’m sitting outside my house in London having a coffee, and I’m freaking out because the album is out tomorrow. But I’m so excited for you to hear it,” says on the Twitter voice recording. “I’ve poured my heart and soul into every single line, and I just really wanted to take this time as well to say thank you. Thank you for giving me that year and a half to be at home and write this album. Thank you for letting me do what I do every day.”

“I hope you like it,” he adds. “Please be honest if you don’t. But be kind at the same time. I don’t think my heart could take it.”
